Got my Aussie Lockers

I got my Aussie Lockers today. They came in a nice little cardboard box that wasnt crushed. It was nice for a change. The lockers themselvers look very good. All of the teeth lock together perfectly. I can tell that they paid attention to detail when making them. I will put them in as soon as my gears and axleshafts get here.

Not that I can afford them, but I'd like to see some pix of them myself too Tom.

I dont have any way to post pics. It looks very similar to a lockright. The pic in the post above is just like it. I cant wait to put them in.

Re: Got my Aussie Lockers

How hard are these guy supposed to be to put in?

I have been contemplating getting one of these for awhile now... but the local off road shop wants $450 JUST to install a locker. and that is not including parts.

Is this something a mechanically inclined guy could tackle or teach himself?

also, a buddy of mine just destroyed the spider gears in the reart of his tj, and was contemplating options to get it back on the road, would one of these guys take the place of the spdier gears? or would he need to fix the spiders before installing this?

how hard is the install in either case, how long would it take and any special tools or anything?

Re: Got my Aussie Lockers

You can do it youself. No need to reset the backlash and so on.....given you keep the same gears. If you are changing gears, then I would enlist the services of a guru.

Re: Got my Aussie Lockers

A previous post referred to the aussie locker as being made of a "composite". Is this correct? And if so, what material is it made of? I'm skeptical of it being anything other than steel. From the pictures, I can't tell the difference between it and a lockrite.
